This wheel adapter set ranges in thickness from 18mm-35mm. As thickness increases, optimal mounting bolt and stud lengths are maintained. Required adapter thickness is dependent on the offset and width of your new wheels. Offset calculations are unique to each vehicle and wheel and should be carefully considered. If you need help calculating offsets, follow our technical guides to get started.
This wheel adapter set is studded with M12x1.5 studs. Each adapter is accurately machined to allow the serrated wheel studs to be pressed into counterbores from the hub side of the adapter. As thickness increases, wheel stud length and counterbore depth is adjusted to maintain the safest conversion possible. Grade 10.9 zinc plated wheel studs are used. All wheel studs are sourced from OEM applications and made in the USA.
Each wheel adapter set includes 8 mounting bolts. Mounting bolts are threaded M12x1.5 and configured to safely bolt the wheel adapter to the vehicle hub. Grade 10.9 and 12.9 socket cap bolts are used to allow stud clearance.
Lug nuts are available in two seat styles. Seat style is based on your new wheels. Most OEM VW/Audi wheels use ball seat hardware. Most aftermarket wheels use cone seat hardware. Lug nuts are grade 10.9, zinc plated, and made in Italy. Ball seat lug nuts require a 17mm socket. Cone seat lug nuts require a 19mm socket.
This wheel adapter set includes a pair of centering rings. These centering rings are unique to 42 Draft Designs Wheel Adapters and allow the user to configure their adapter without custom machining. Installed in the adapters, our centering rings fit the center bore of your wheel and provide true hubcentric and wheelcentric fitment.
Centering rings are available in a range of sizes popular to this bolt pattern conversion. If you require a different size, a custom centering ring can be machined for you within 24-48 hours of placing your order. Simply choose the 'Custom' option and include your custom size in the comments box when placing your order. Rings can be changed at any time and are available for individual purchase.
